Ledsham remain on course for promotion despite being unable to finish their Division Two game with Thorner Mexborough in the Wetherby League.

After doing a good job in the field second-placed Ledsham had high hopes of recording another victory to increase their advantage over Headingley Bramhope in third.

But rain ended the game early with Ledsham on 71-4 in reply to their opponents’ 116 all out. Chris Woodall was not out on 20 and John Speight unbeaten on 19 when the game ended.

Johnny Smales (3-29), Andrew Kelly (3-30), Oliver Baron (2-17) and William Day (2-37) had earlier been the wicket takers for Ledsham, who remain seven points clear of Headingley Bramhope who also had their game cut short without a positive result.

Kippax remain nine points clear at the top of Division Three after beating the rain and opponents Kirk Deighton A by nine wickets.

In a rain reduced contest Kirk Deighton made 113-2 before Kippax raced to victory, losing just one wicket in their reply. Dan Hall hit 54 not out and Syed Hussain an unbeaten 58.
